2021 Trauma & Resilience Virtual Conference

Virtual trainings to understand trauma and build resilience

July 19-23, 2021

Starr's virtual conference consisted of 20 virtual sessions delivered in focused topics surrounding larger trauma-informed, resilience-focused themes - packed full of practice-based resources for immediate implementation.

All conference attendees have unlimited access to the conference content for 1 month following the event, during which time credit towards a Starr certification, recertification, and CE/CEUs can be awarded.

This powerful virtual conference is designed for helping professionals who work with children, adolescents, and families including, but not limited to: teachers, school administration and staff, psychologists, social workers, counselors, and hospice workers. We hope you walk away feeling even more Driven to Heal the children, families, and communities you serve!

Video replay will be available on StarrPass starting August 20, 2021.

Why the addition of days? Like you, two of the many things we have learned over the past year are:

  1. “Zoom” fatigue is real
  2. Life and work keep going, even when you are attending a conference!

To give your eyes, minds, and bodies more time to recharge and reflect on all of the great conference content we have in store for you this year, and some longer breaks to check-in with your colleagues, kids, etc., we have:

  • Spread the content over more days (from 3 days to 5)
  • Reduced the number of session per day (from 4 timeslots per day to 3)
  • Increased the amount of time between sessions (from 30 minute breaks to 1 hour)
